Turkeypalooza Every November the Campus Kitchen at W&L serves up holiday meals, turkey deliveries, and other fun events! Volunteer to make Thanksgiving meals, donate the cost of a turkey to the program, or bring a frozen turkey to work!

Campus Kitchen's Turkeypalooza is an annual series of events focused around combatting food insecurity specifically in preparation for the Thanksgiving holiday. CKWL hosts a number of unique events during this week long series, including holiday meals at partner organizations, a Backpack Pack-a-Thon to ensure that the Backpack Program continues over the holidays, and frozen turkey deliveries to  local families. Recognizing the specific challenges families experiencing poverty face in a season often characterized by gift giving, CKWL hopes to alleviate a potential financial barrier present in this time.
